Default Electrical Ground Question

Just out of curiosity how many total grounds should we have on our D21ís
I want to make sure everything is properly grounded since I have no lights
Also my dash is completely out so Iíll be able to look thoroughly
Thanks all

Check fuses for the dash. Reverse light fuse I believe. Mine blows with some trailers when I put the truck in reverse.

Let's test my memory...
Battery to engine
Engine to passenger fender, where other harnesses tie in as well
braid from frame to bottom of cab, near the "hoop"
Braid from frame to bed near the rear of the bed
Braid from Engine to firewall

Actually, to answer your original question, 5. I'm going with five total grounds.
Curious why I was thanked separately from the guys, considering that I'm a guy, too. (Maybe I don't want to know. LOL)
